The Frames - Set ListIn the early ’90s, Irish singer Glen Hansard landed a part in Alan Parker’s film The Commitments. At the same time, his band the Frames got signed to Island Records. But Hansard’s billing in the movie hamstrung his band while the Frames fell victim to label indifference. Now the Frames are Ireland’s biggest live act, more popular than U2. This live album shows why. Exquisite songs like “Star Star,” “Lay Me Down” “Fitzcarraldo,” all featuring crowd sing-alongs, reveal Hansard to be a gifted songwriter and performer.
